Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde

Stop Paying Attention to What is Going on Around You

Don’t become too preoccupied by what is happening around you, Pay more attention to what is going on within you.

                    -Mary Frances Winters

 

Today, the day after winter Solstice is when Mercury comes out of Retrograde and is now in it’s shadow part.  I am not too much into Astrology – but maybe you noticed or felt it this time?? – this Retrograde was about reflecting, reviewing, revisiting on the past of 2017 and for some of us it was rather intense!

There is much on the internet for Astrology – Leo King, Kaypacha are my fav’s when I tap in.

Sometimes the Void is a Struggle – Just Surrender

Yet worth it!!

All good, yet not always easy as it feels like time is standing still.  For me I felt like I was in a void – once I realized this I knew I had to surrender and review.  When we can do that or spend some time in solitude, in nature, in quietness, in the question (not having an attachment or coming to conclusion) then we can allow in new energies, new thoughts, new beliefs and new ways of being for the coming year – 2018.

We learn to see and be from a new perspective which is a different energy which then creates a different life.  For me it has been extremely healing and expanding and growing!!

Quantum Physics and many people have proven that Everything IS Energy…….we ARE energy, consciousness, angels, souls or whatever other name you want to cal it – yet dressed up as a human while here on planet earth to learn some lessons, play, have fun, experience a wide range of emotions as once we return aka die – we go back to being pure love, light energy.

None of this will matter – as it’s ALL an illusion any ways……….a bit of a mind fuck isn’t it??  Yet when we approach it like that we won’t take it too seriously 🙂

What truly matters is how much did we love and how much were we able to give and be love.

It ALL starts with self.

Everything and Everyone is just a reflection back to us from our internal state of thinking and being.

Everything & Everyone IS Just a Reflection

Mercury rules the mind – our minds are very powerful – they are either working against us, with us or for us!!

Take some time before the end of 2017 to reflect and review to be able to be clear on what does work for you in your life and what doesn’t.

Create each day from the energy of being and feeling – joy, love, gratitude, bliss and whatever else that pleases you.

After all – it is YOUR life.!!

 

Much Love & Gratitude

Self Love is True Love

Self Love is NOT Selfish – You cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself!!

My Soul Wanted Growth

My Soul Wanted Growth

My Soul Wanted Growth……..have you ever been in a situation that maybe didn’t make sense to you at the time but looking back on it later the clarity is more vivid?

Yes Yoga especially Yin has been a big part of my healing and growth

 

In December when I came down to Mexico to house sit, in the first 2 weeks I was here I had to 2 scenarios that altered my life, my direction I was going and honestly brought me to my knees.

I was in Mexico – didn’t know a soul, couldn’t speak the language and had to start going within, quieting the mind chatter, letting myself cry and feel the emotions I needed to (that is an upcoming post that I can’t wait to share how to move emotions through the body!!) – so interesting looking back how events unfolded (no matter how shitty they were) so I could truly step up!!

Ever get stuck in a prickly bush????

Plus I had some very amazing friends that held space for me even if it was over the phone – support network is good too – you guys know who you are and I am so grateful for you all!! xoxo

Things like that happen – whether emotionally or physically – yes even physically when we truly aren’t listening, paying attention or on the wrong path or we have distorted views – which most of us do or we would be enlightened.  It’s our Souls way of saying Wake up!!

Oldest Bar in New Orleans – oh if those walls could talk!!!

For many of us, myself included – it’s easy to take the victim role and tell our ‘story’ over and over and  ask questions like Why did this happen to me? What’s wrong with me? etc

www.jodiburke.com

Who wants to stay locked up in the past??? There is only NOW.

We don’t want to stay locked up in the past or old ways of being!

As we move along the path of becoming more Conscious and therefore taking responsibility for everything that happens in our life – cause after all we ARE the Creators of our lives – but we have been taught, programmed, dumbed down and lied to that we really aren’t in control and things just happen.

Bull shit!! 🙂

Thank goodness that Science is evolving and bridging with it Spirituality and yes crap doesn’t just happen to us – we create it into physical form from our thoughts, feelings and beliefs.  Hard do swallow sometimes I know.  Trust me I know, yet if everything is energy (and it is) and vibrates at different frequencies it shows us that we can and need to take responsibility IF we want different things, feelings and people inner lives.

When we take responsibility we ask different questions, we look at things, situations and people in our life as a reflection of our thoughts and beliefs – Nassim Haramein has shared his documented studies in the Connected Universe – I highly recommend watching it.  Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and Dr. Joe Dispenza also have some amazing studies, facts and new ways of thinking AND being – I have learned lots!

With that being said, I have been diving in and out of Quantum Physics etc for a couple of years but couldn’t fully embody it.  When these events happened I knew I had to dive in and ask myself what was being reflected back to me and honestly be open to seeing things about myself I couldn’t or didn’t want to before!

What kind of energy was I vibrating (feeling), what were my thoughts, beliefs, patterns and how did I truly feel about myself.

Big Step Forward

I wanted to take a BIG leap forward! 🙂

I didn’t want to stay stuck and to keep telling the same story I wanted to move the energy!

I’ll be honest, wasn’t always easy – there were moments where I just wanted to go to the mall shopping (escaping some pain, going unconscious :)) and not deal with it but I knew the more I pushed through the layers of BS I would come out lighter and have more of me – the true authentic me.  It didn’t happen over night and I had to go through and re-experience some of it to truly embody the lessons and go deeper within.

Oh my!!!! The payoff has been worth it all.

Our true self is the essence of unconditional love, pure joy, bliss and gratitude – all the other things are just big fat fucking lies we tell ourselves from the stories we have created or have happened to us.

Higher Vibe Living and Being

Feeling the love even on a bad hair day with no make up – is also being vulnerable and authentic!

Growth is not always easy but I feel it’s worth every moment as when you are re-claiming more of you, living truly authentic, having much love for self and others, raising your vibration which allows for more consciousness.

Words cannot describe it at all – one has to experience it!

It’s NOT about being perfect – what is perfect? Who is perfect? Let go there is NO getting it right only evolution!

My world has opened up, new people and experiences have been coming in that have been amazing, my awareness has increased and my new path has been lit up – I can’t wait to share more (it’s like I am getting downloads ) as the world needs us to step into our true authentic selves and be the light and way showers for others – the more we do this is we re-claim our power and  self love then changes can be made here on planet earth like crazy!!

Know that whatever you are going through it’s only temporary and things can change fast – ask yourself better questions, what lesson can you learn, what do you need to see and how can you be more truthful with yourself – about ALL aspects of self.

We’ve all created stories, patterns and beliefs from our parents, teachers and society – not to make anyone wrong as everyone is doing the best they can but it’s time to tell different, more empowering, loving and intentional stories!

I will be sharing more tools, inspiration, thoughts and my journey AND reviving the Raw, Naked and Beautiful Project – Real, Authentic and Whole!!

www.jodiburke.com

When you embrace more of YOU – it’s very freeing!!

It’s time for many of us to step into ourselves and the lives we truly desire to live and create as it all starts within!!

I am so Grateful my Soul Wanted Growth – does yours?

Create a fantastic day!!!

Gratitude……..I

choose this today as yesterday was my birthday and I had a fabulous day!!! I had to deal with a couple of things that I really wasn’t looking forward to, but they turned out well…….thank you!
I started my day with a beautiful walk on the beach with my dog Spirit.
I got to have tea with one of my BFF’s where we could really be open and honest and share……some good and not so good, but very important lessons.
I was feeling amazing and healthy all day.
I got to have a beautiful supper, that was prepared with love from some very special friends that remembered I eat raw even though they don’t, she prepared one of my favorite dishes!! My kids were with me and some good friends.
We ate.
We laughed.
I got to open presents and have Happy Birthday sung to me and eat Chocolate Cheesecake…….yes it was raw!!
Oh, and I didn’t have to do any of the dishes or cooking or cleaning……..how good is that??
Sometimes it the small things that count, like beautiful sunsets, friends, good laughs and not having to do dishes that make the best memories.
Being present, being grateful and loving what is………is just doesn’t get any better than that!!!

With that being said, thank you to everyone for reading, sharing and leaving comments!!
For this giveaway, leave a comment on what you are grateful for in your life. Comments will be
accepted until Sunday morning 9 am.  Oh yeah and this time, since I’m still in such a great and grateful mood since my birthday, I want to give away a coaching session…….what a great way to kick start the new year!!

Have a beautiful weekend till then!!!  

Remembrance

Today is Remembrance Day in Canada.  Schools, Government and some businesses are closed.  There are some parades but around all cenetafs you will find some service today honoring the men and women who fought in our wars.  Most of us wear a poppy.

I don’t know anyone personally or even in my family who have fought in a war.

Take a few moments today to reflect and give thanks not only to those that have gone to war, those who did not come back, those that are still in a war today and all the great things ad people in your life.

Today is a day of remembering and giving thanks so spend a couple of minutes in silence doing so .

I want to thank all of you who are part of this blog.

Have a beautiful day!!

JB

Gratitude

What does Gratitude have to do with anything??

Everything!!!

I have been thinking alot of this since our Canadian Thanksgiving and how I can add and be more grateful in my life.  I understand that we can only feel one emotion at a time, so why not choose feelings like Gratitude.  It is such an awesome place to be.

When you are in a real state of gratitude your energy (vibrational resonance) is one of harmony and acceptance. You resonate at a much higher vibrational frequency which is exactly what attracts to you the events, conditions, and circumstances that you desire.

Everything is Energy, and if you think that is hippy dippy stuff……stop!! Science and Quatum Physics is proving that.  We are walking, talking, breathing magnets……..what are you attracting………Love, joy, anger, fear…….. Watch your words and watch what you are feeling or resonating?  Expressing Gratitude for anything  puts out a magnetic force that draws to you more of what you are expressing gratitude for.

If you need help in that area, EFT is an amazing tool for getting in more of a state of Gratitude.  So is the Gratitude Log, a place where you can go and connect with other people and share what you are grateful for, a good habit to get in too!!

Dr Emoto has been able to photograph water crystals while having certain energies around the water.  The link goes to the photograph of the Gratitude one and it is beautiful.  If you’re not familiar with his work, go to your local library, or You Tube to see some of the photographs, positive and negative, you may be surprised at how the water crystals can change, and guess what??  We are more than 80% water, so as Mike Dooley says with his notes from The Universe, ‘Thoughts become Things so choose the good ones!!!’

Leave a comment with what you are Grateful for.

I will start……I am grateful for all of you, thank you for allowing me in your life!!

Have an awesome day!!
